Kitty Logan has lost her way…
As a journalist, she’s spent the past few years chasing the big scoops – no matter the consequences. When she makes a terrible mistake, she finds herself mired in scandal, her career implodes and even her personal relationships are tested to the limits.
At a loss, Kitty finds distraction in a list of one hundred names her late mentor and boss, Constance, has left her. Kitty’s been given one final chance, the most important assignment of her life – to write the story behind the one hundred names as a tribute piece to Constance. As she tracks down the people on the list and tries to work out what connects them, Kitty meets some extraordinary people.
Can these strangers’ stories help her finally understand her own?
I wanted to write a story about writing stories. I wanted to convey that the art of storytelling is about listening, observing, and taking time to understand people - not manipulating, embellishing or lying. In this novel Kitty learns that every ordinary person has an extraordinary story, and for me, it was reaffirming that I must write what moves me and not what is expected of me.
Make space for it in your life.
A strong, original concept and a sense of a new, more serious Cecelia Ahern emerging… She could go anywhere from here.
